Oh yeah...that is why

Things I love about Minnesota:

- The Minnesota State Fair
- The beauty when the snow falls
- Snow days...when they happen
- The wonderful weather in Spring and Fall
- The VIKES!!!
- Having my family (mostly) close by
- Being able to play outside with the kids (almost) all year long
- Snowmobiling
- Cabin time!!

Things I HATE about Minnesota:

- Mosquito's the size of a VW
- Tornado season
- Drivers who forget how to drive when we get one inch of snow
- One hour commutes to to 8 miles (see above)
- A Senate race that JUST WON'T END

The good out weigh the bad...sometime I just need a reminder.

I heard about the senate thing again the other day. Now people are going to hand count the votes? Nice. I read that there were more votes than registered voters. No wonder people don't trust the system anymore. (not that I was surprised when all those Franken votes turned up in cars)

I don't like tornado season either but I am also not a fan of the snow.

I like 70 degrees and sunshine year round...wonder where I can find that?

Michigans the same way with driving in the snow. You'd think everyone was from out of state the way they feak out at the first snow.

I hate tornadoes though - luckily we rarely get hit here.

Stay warm - we've got 15 degrees on ya! It's like spring time copared to you lol! And we have 4" on the ground.

I have Minneapolis on my list of cities I would like to visit...but only in the summertime because I'm from the south which makes me wimpy and whiny about cold weather.

Our idea of cold is 50 degrees.
